As Saquon Barkley seeks additional opinions about his ankle injury, the Giants worked out a trio of backs on Tuesday.
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano has confirmed that Big Blue worked out Fozzy Whittaker, Benny Cunningham and Zach Zenner.
Originally an undrafted free agent signing by the Cardinals, Whittaker was claimed by the Panthers prior to the 2014 season. He played sparingly with Carolina in his four seasons there, rushing for 536 yards on 121 carries while scoring four total touchdowns (two rushing, two receiving). Also an experienced kick returner, Whittaker suffered an ACL injury that caused him to miss the entire 2018 season.
Cunningham, meanwhile, has put up similar career numbers over his six NFL seasons, rushing for 797 yards with seven total touchdowns. Over the last two seasons, though, he's run the ball just 20 times for 49 yards with the Bears. He signed with the Jaguars this past offseason, but was released in August.
Zenner, an undrafted free agent signing out of South Dakota State by the Lions in 2015, played in 36 games over four years for Detroit, averaging 3.9 yards per carry with 685 career rushing yards.
Barkley is headed to Green Bay on Wednesday to see foot/ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson for a second opinion, a source confirmed to Vacchiano.
Pat Shurmur announced on Monday that the injury was officially a high ankle sprain, but did not offer a timetable of when the star running back could be back in action.
